Oct 2020 12 – 16

The event is organised by the Observer Research Foundation (ORF). The CyFy 2020 will gather an international community of experts for the first time in a virtual setting, to identify, interrogate and interpret the new normal that is emerging in the global digital society. Radhika Radhakrishnan from the Internet Democracy Project will be a panelist in the session on ‘At the Altar of Solutionism? Digital Rights and Inclusion After the Pandemic’

The global response to the novel coronavirus will not only accelerate the process of digitalisation but also fundamentally alter its trajectory. A new wave of technologies, norms, government policies and social behaviours will emerge, wither or evolve, compelling rapid resolutions to long-festering fault-lines or, for better or worse, entrenching them.

The conference will address the difficult questions that this new situation raises.
